Cat among by Elaine Newton

Category: Writing Group

A cute kitten pounces
With fresh-born animality
Claws slashing
At the scattering
White doves

An actor practises
Shakespearean lines
Like a dark heart beating
Set the cat among the doves

Cook is coming with
Her rolling pin
She’ll catch as many
As she can

Anne Hathaway’s cottage
Is immaculately preserved
They always have
Pigeon pie on Tuesdays

Each and every cobblestone
Stinks of genius
I lean against the wall,
Giddy

Rip my feathers out
Put me in a pie
Write me into a sonnet
Then I will drink your posset,
Willingly
